I have a longstanding and ongoing interest in improvement science. My experience here includes:
I had an episode of depression at medical school which went on for several months. Fortunately, no suicidal ideation. The weirdest thing was the symptom/experience called anhedonia – an almost complete lack of any pleasure, joy or positive emotion. Felt life was just grey and would continue to be so into the future, forever. I thought I was permanently changed. Fortunately, I wasn’t, and whilst my inner critic is still alive and well, I haven’t had a recurrence. I suspect this experience shaped my career path into psychiatry and occupational medicine, and my continued interest in mental health, positive (non-clinical) approaches to wellbeing improvement, and digital health and wellbeing.
